Informa’s Graduate Fellowship Scheme is a two-year UK-based programme for new and recent graduates.
From editorial to finance, digital to event operations, sales to research, marketing and more, Graduate Fellows work across a range of businesses, sectors and roles in the UK and internationally, and get their careers off to a great start.
We’re passionate about our customers and the specialist markets they operate in, and about the power of knowledge, information and connections to help them learn more, know more and do more.
If you enjoy variety and collaborating with experts, want to get under the skin of a dynamic and growing business and are comfortable seizing opportunities, Informa’s Graduate Fellowship Scheme could be for you.
As a Graduate Fellow, you’ll be an important part of the Informa team from day one.
You’ll take on different roles and gain exposure to senior leadership, and fully participate in the life of the company, professionally and socially.
What you can look forward to
A two-year rotational programme including:
- Four four-month placements in the UK, each in a different division and role
- A six-month placement in an Informa office outside the UK
- Tailored induction and development programme
- Mentoring from senior Informa leaders
- Support finding a permanent role within Informa after completing the scheme
- Full eligibility for Informa's benefits programmes
Life on the Graduate Scheme
After a comprehensive induction you’ll begin your first placement, joining a team and starting work on live projects straight away.
Graduate Fellows report into their placement manager as well as the Graduate Programme Coordinator, and each is assigned a senior mentor.
The scheme balances support and structure with the chance to take responsibility from day one and the freedom to act on opportunities.
After four placements in the UK, Graduate Fellows spend six months in an Informa office in another country.
It’s a chance to make connections, experience different ways of working and bring new perspectives and fresh ideas into your next role.
Wherever our graduates are in the world, there is a consistent level of support every step of the way.
